The 2022 BMW Motorrad G310R, representing the entry-level BMW Motorrad motorcycle series, as well as the G310GS and G310GS ’40 Years Edition’ are now available in Malaysia. The G310R nude sports version starts at RM27,500, and the G310GS and G310 GS 40-year version are priced at RM29,500 and RM31,500, respectively. All prices are on the road without insurance.
G310GS offers three new color schemes-kyanite blue spar blue metallic (with the “Style Rally” catalog name) and polar white, as well as the unique cosmic black of the “40 Years Edition”. At the same time, G310R only offers limestone metallic paint, called Style Sport, with red painted wheels and frame.
In terms of mechanics, the G310 remains the same as before. Power comes from 313 cc, a liquid-cooled single cylinder with four valves, DOHC and powered by EFI. It outputs 34 hp at 9,500 rpm and 28 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. The unique feature of BMW Motorrad’s G310 engine is the reverse cylinder head, with the air intake facing forward and the exhaust opening towards the rear of the bicycle.
The change to the wire-controlled throttle provides better throttle response. The increase in automatic idle speed prevents the G310 from stalling at startup. Some inexperienced riders may find this feature useful. Power reaches the ground through a six-speed gearbox equipped with an auxiliary and slip clutch, which reduces leverage and rear wheel bounce during hard downshifts.
Other changes include the engine housing cover of the alternator, clutch and water pump painted in metallic titanium gray for the G310GS, while the G310GS 40-year version, of which only 40 will be sold in Malaysia, will be painted with a specific model of black and yellow scheme. All G310 models can be purchased in BMW Motorrad Malaysia showrooms authorized nationwide.
